After arriving unexpectedly in Australia at the end of June, it appears the Razer gaming phone is quietly being cleared out of JB HiFi with limited stock left being sold at $899 down from its original price of $1,099.

The phone took a fairly long time to launch in Australia, but arrive it did, bringing with it a Sharp produced 120Hz IGZO LCD panel aimed helping gamers to make the most of the low-latency response. The phone isn’t exactly top of the line in terms of specs with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 but it’s fairly close with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and a microSD card slot making up for it.

The phone comes with dual front-facing Dolby ATMOS certified speakers and a THX-certified USB-C audio adapter which includes a 24-bit digital audio convertor (DAC) for fantastic sound quality with your favourite headphones. But, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack either.

We’ve not had a chance to go hands-on with the Razer phone, but reports seem to be that it’s a decent handset. If you’re a keen gamer and think this would up the ante in your mobile gaming there’s limited handsets left online for $899. You can head over to the JB Hifi website now to check it out.
